My laptop is four and a half years old, so it’s time for a new box before this one dies and takes everything with it. (Yes, I have everything backed up. I like redundancy in computers.)
Here’s my question, and I only put it out to you because I’m undecided: Mac (probably a MacBook Air) or a Windows-based PC?
I’m really not a fan of what I’ve seen of Windows 8, but everything I have is Windows-based. For writing I use Scrivener (available on both) and Word (available on both) and back up to Google Drive (platform doesn’t matter). I also do a lot with photos and have some editing software here on the laptop.
So I’m looking for your experience-based advice. What would you recommend, and why?
